pink hearts and horseback riding / volleyball / chinese lunar new year / guns

yes, that describes my upcoming valentine’s day weekend. (btw, if you’ve read my personal description, you’ll see i’m a bit eccentric.)

horseback riding: scheduling this has proven a bit tough. i just want to gallop a bit and roam in the virginia highlands and for freakin’s sake i work out by farmland — but for some reason, i can’t find a horseback riding facility that allows more than the ho-hum guided trail. i’ve heard the suggestion of greenway stables, but they seem to be long gone…

volleyball: i’ve been playing in the capitol alumni networkleague and am mildly obsessed. our games are wednesdays, but i’d love to play more. anyone got a good thing going on? i recently went to herndon community center and have quite an amusing anecdote. on tuesdays, the majority of the regular players are chinese. it’s just been that way for awhile. so i went this past tuesday for the first time, and forgetting it was chinese lunar new year, i was mildly amused that not one person on court was chinese. the 10 players were most unexpectedly and most oppositely of hispanic origin. i wonder how next tuesday will go…both groups seem very friendly and i think there will be alot of language-knowledge exchanged. volleyball styles are completely different though…

guns. well, this is how the conversation went:

friend: hey what are you up to on monday for valentine’s day…

me: well, no plans yet…probably dinner, movie, whatever…

friend: wanna go blam blam?

me: what?

friend: you know…

me: what?

friend: c’mon the shooting range!

me: ah yes, you’ve been wanting to go for awhile and vday is as good as any

so, i’ve taken the day off and we’re heading to blue ridge arsenal. do you know what to expect? coz i don’t. my dad always wanted me to learn to shoot…just because. because it develops my skills…as a hunter…for food (?). anyway, in college, i wanted to do archery over shooting, but ended up w/ ball room dancin’. so let’s see how my aim does (be very glad you’re not going w/ me).

hope you vday, no matter who you are or are not with, is just as random…
